Kate Middleton is a protective mom.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a lot of staff and their kids have a nanny, too. However, their household employees do not reduce Prince William and Middleton’s desire to be hands-on parents to their children.

According to a Daily Telegraph report, during Princess Charlotte’s public debut, Middleton and Prince William posed with their newborn on the steps at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital along with their little princess. Middleton expressed her fear of Princess Charlotte getting “cold.” Prince William assured his wife that their daughter was “fine” and that she was good. However, the doting mom insisted, “Let’s take her inside.”

Middleton and Princess Charlotte are very close. Just recently, Prince William and Middleton brought their only daughter and Prince George to the King’s Cup Regatta. Middeton was caught on camera encouraging her daughter to wave at the crowd. However, Princess Charlotte didn’t comply, and instead, she stuck her tongue out, which many found hilarious.

Middleton just laughed at her daughter’s antics. Many praised Middleton’s reaction because they believe that she reacted adorably.

“Her reaction was so adorable and natural. Honestly, brings a tear to my eye. I like seeing realistic things. It makes me happy in this age,” Stephanie Phillips, who studied Philosophy & Law at Harvard University, commented.

However, unlike Middleton, according to body language Judi James, the duchess’ mom, Carole Middleton, wasn’t impressed with Princess Charlotte’s naughty streak. According to the expert, it looked like Carole was thinking of nipping Princess Charlotte’s naughtiness in the bud.

James explained that what Princess Charlotte did was cheeky and a little bit naughty. If one just laughs, the little princess will feel that her actions amuse the adults and will probably continue doing it. However, she also warned Carole to proceed with caution because the naughty habit of tongue poking isn’t new to the royal family. Prince William and Prince Harry did the same thing when they were her age.

Middleton’s mom is a big influence to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Carole brings them to Party Pieces, the company that the Middletons run, and there they play as shopkeepers.
